The Island Junior Hockey League is a Junior "B" ice hockey league in Prince Edward Island, Canada, sanctioned by Hockey Canada.

History

Since being founded in 1996, the IJHL has been strictly a Junior "B" League—one tier below the Maritime Junior A Hockey League and two tiers below the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League which both draw from the same region.

The IJHL shares its name with the former Junior "A" league that played in the same region, the Island Junior Hockey League.

In 2002, the O'Leary Eagles won the Don Johnson Cup as Maritime Junior B champions. Nine years later, in 2011, the Kensington Vipers repeated the act as Maritime Champions. The Don Johnson Cup has been generally dominated by the Nova Scotia Junior B Hockey League.
